Pinterest Party Friday #67 (Plus a Giveaway!)


Happy Friday everyone!!! Wow this week flew by! I think it took me a couple of days to get caught-up on sleep after Haven. Yes, I know I promised you a recap, and I promise I will deliver it on Monday. I went down to my booth yesterday, and it was so empty! I have some serious painting to get caught up on, but I am still finishing a couple of custom pieces, so today I am stenciling -- which is one of my least favorite things to do. I am working on a dresser for a nursery, and I know … [Read more...]

Happy Friday everyone!!! I wrote this in advance as I will be at the Haven blogging conference in Atlanta today. I will be taking classes for photography, branding, advertising, plus a lot more. Fun cocktail parties, and I basically get to hang out with 350 other people who do what I do. Topher and the unnamed child will be on their own at home, so I will be curious to see what the house looks like when I get back... I will fill you in next week with lots of pics and info on Haven! … [Read more...]

Pinterest Party Friday #65


Happy 4th of July!!! I can't believe that we actually have nice weather on the 4th. For the last two years it has rained. My poor pup, Gracie, has been in a tizzy all week since she is terrified of fireworks. Tonight will be a long night for her. We are heading over to my brother's to see my little niece and have a BBQ with some of their neighbors.  The kiddo is making a dessert to bring tonight, Topher's mowing and I'm painting. Super exciting. I just want to thank every one of my … [Read more...]

Pinterest Party Friday #64


Happy Friday everyone!! I'm two weeks away from my blogging conference, so I am in major workout mode trying to get this bod a bit more toned-up before I go. The unnamed child and I worked out so hard today that every muscle in my body is screaming out in pain with every little movement. I'm not sure what hurts worse, going up the stairs or going down. I had to go to a meeting tonight and just sitting down caused a small little shriek that I had to hide with a fake cough. I will be … [Read more...]

Pinterest Party Friday #63


Happy Friday everyone!! This week flew by! With family in town and babysitting my little niece for a couple of days, there were not enough hours in the day. On the bright side, with family coming over it forced me to get my house clean, but with a ten month old here all day today ... that will probably change. We are going to have a day full of very loud toys, and her big word is "uh-oh" which she will practice about 100 times during the day. She is such a cutie, and she is getting more … [Read more...]

Pinterest Party Friday #62


Happy Friday everyone!! Do you have big plans for the weekend? We are doing a thorough cleaning around here:  carpets, dusting, bathrooms ... the whole shebang. Doesn't that sound exciting? My booth has been doing well, but now it looks like a ghost town, and I am trying to go as fast as I can to get it refilled. Until the unnamed child finds a job, I am paying her to help me with my pieces. She is getting to be a pretty good painter these days! We are hoping we can squeeze in some time … [Read more...]

Pinterest Party Friday #61


Happy Pinterest Party Friday everyone!!! This week really flew by! I had two big projects to knock:  one was my Vintage Chic Wedding Shower and the other one I can show you on Monday, so this weekend I will be getting ready for that. I have got to work on cleaning this house up this weekend! When you are constantly rearranging your house for photo shoots, things tend to get out of control around here. Topher and I will be taking a trip to DC soon (don't worry, we have people … [Read more...]

Pinterest Party Friday #60


Happy Friday everyone!!! This has been a jam-packed week for me making deadlines. I would like to tell you it's all over ... but I have a big one due on the 28th and another on the 2nd. So until then, I am moving as fast as possible around here. The kiddo is enjoying her first day out of school today, and I am enjoying having someone here to help me. I am determined to take a few hours off this weekend, though, to hang out with the family. On to this week's favorite pin's! … [Read more...]

Pinterest Party #59


Happy Pinterest Party Friday everyone!!! You know the kind of week when everything just kind Well, this has been that kind of week for me, and I'm glad the week is coming to a close -- even though the things that sucked never really got resolved. On the bright side, I get to babysit my ridiculously cute little niece today. I went and picked-up her favorite kinds of toys: the really loud and obnoxious ones that 9 month olds love! If the weather is nice, we are going to go … [Read more...]

Pinterest Party Friday #58


Happy Pinterest Party Friday!!! Guess what? I'm in hell. I am having a yard sale. All of you who have ever had one know exactly what I am talking about. Yard sale money is the hardest earned money you will ever get. First of all, the set up takes FOR-EV-ER! Now, I know that some people just throw up some card tables and dump some boxes onto them and call it good. That's not how it works at our house. Every table must have a table cloth, and they all must be ironed. Then everything has to … [Read more...]
